I missed this in the TV coverage. How embarrassing.

When I saw the title of the video and the thumbnail, I assumed he was going to fall backwards into the water. I think those two flubs might have been worse. a4_sad.gif

That was just bad. Then he pulls he putter, which is one of those huge mallet ones. If I was him, I would have taken a hybrid or 4 iron and putted it. I think the smaller clubhead would have made the 2nd attempt a non-issue.

That is EXACTLY what I thought as well.  :beer:

Back to Speith: just looked up OWGR and he finished T4 in a tournament with the best field in golf and still lost a spot in the rankings. Brutal.

I fully agree with the comment, yet: heaven forbid, with al Duval's (indeed curious intellectual) qualities, that Spieth goes down that eventual shades-hiding slope. He is technically not better than Duval, but I think he takes life (as a very young man) in general less seriously than the D in his prime, which indeed might be Spieth's eventual up-step. Spieth knows golf and only golf. D knew and knows so much more about life than golf. For a professional, that is both good and bad.

 

Spieth's anxiety on Sunday is absolutely normal: he is not 21 yet, for grace' sake.

Duval had allergies that effected his eyes. Wearing glasses helped him keep the pollen out of his eyes.

Same here. I guess I would rather be dry and have those to hits, then just fall in and do something worse.

I'm not even sure I know what I'm supposed to do, rules-wise, in your hypothetical situation. If I hit into the water such that my stroke was taken *between* where the ball enters the water and the hole, where do I play my next from?

I'd have rather fallen in the water!

I would have jumped after the 2nd.

Swatting at the grass behind his ball was not a good move, could be considered improving his lie.

I think most of the officials turned away in horror...
